As I am a human person who breathes, I love Batman. You would probably be hard pressed to find somebody that doesn’t. So, when the guys at Celebs Clothing offered me the chance to try their Batman varsity jacket, you can guess what my response was.
I’ve always wanted a varsity jacket, and with the opportunity to mix it up with one of the best superheroes out there, I was excited to get my hands on this. It didn’t disappoint when it arrived at my door.
Wearing it feels like getting a cuddle from a blanket, and I’m not just saying that because I’m needy. This jacket is one of the most comfortable I’ve ever owned, probably thanks to the soft fabric and great fit. It pretty much fits perfectly and even has a slimming effect, which when you eat as much takeaway as I do, is never a bad thing.
It breathes quality, despite the low price. No corners seem to have been cut on trying to create the distinctive Batman look, from the iconic logo to the yellow trim on the cuff, which is a pretty neat touch. It’s an interesting mash of colours -black, grey and yellow- that shouldn’t really work, but it somehow does.
As for how it stands up to the British weather, it’s really good when there’s a slight chill in the air. However, if it’s pouring it down, you might want to opt for something with a hood. The fabric gets sodden quite quickly, though that’s to be expected. It also isn’t quite as “bulky” as your traditional varsity jacket, but the lost insulation is made up for by how slimming it is.
One of the things to be aware of is that delivery takes quite some time as it’s coming from afar. If you have patience, it’s worth the wait. Check it out at celebsclothing.com.
